Diamondbacks and LHP Robbie Ray avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.95 million contract.
It's the first time that the 26-year-old southpaw was arbitration-eligible. Ray had a breakout season in 2017, posting a terrific 2.89 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 218/71 K/BB ratio across 162 innings for the Diamondbacks. Jan 13 - 9:32 AM

Robbie Ray's first career postseason start was a forgettable one, as he was charged with four runs over just 4 1/3 frames in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Ray was pitching on two days' rest after making a 2 1/3-inning relief appearance in the Wild Card Game. Whether that had an effect on him, who knows, but he wasn't sharp in this one, walking four batters, hitting one and giving up four hits while needing 88 pitches to cover his 4 1/3 innings. The series is now headed back to Arizona for Game 3, with the Diamondbacks needing to win three straight to advance.

Robbie Ray said late Wednesday that he will be ready to start Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday against the Dodgers.

Ray, the ideal NLDS Game 1 starter for Arizona, was used for 2 1/3 innings of relief in Wednesday night's NL Wild Card Game victory over the Rockies. He only threw 34 pitches in the outing, so coming back on two days of rest on Saturday is doable. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo should officially announce the rotation sometime Thursday. It could be Taijuan Walker or Zack Godley or Patrick Corbin in Game 1. Wild Card Game starter Zack Greinke is lined up for Game 3.

Robbie Ray allowed one run in 1 1/3 innings in a playoff tuneup victory over the Royals.

Ray gave up one hit, one run, and struck out one. Ray was outstanding in 2017 and a key reason that the the Diamondbacks are going to the postseason this year. He's a candidate to start the first game of the NLDS if the Diamondbacks can advance.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Tuesday that Robbie Ray will work a "shorter outing" in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Royals.

That'll keep him fresh for next week's NL Wild Card Game, if he's needed, or to possibly start Game 1 of the National League Division Series if the Diamondbacks advance. Ray boasts a 15-5 record, 2.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 217/71 K/BB ratio in 160 1/3 innings (27 starts) this season with Arizona.

Robbie Ray allowed two unearned runs, three hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a win against the Giants on Tuesday.

It wasn't the All-Star's sharpest performance of the season but the offense provided him with more than enough support by crawling all over Matt Moore. Ray stands 15-5 with a stellar 2.86 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 217 strikeouts in 160 1/3 innings this season.
Wed, Sep 27, 2017 02:33:00 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered five runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Ray was probably due for an off night after going 5-0 with a 1.39 ERA and a 55/6 K/BB ratio in his first five starts back from the disabled list. Arizona's offense bailed him out tonight, so he still hasn't lost since July 23.

Robbie Ray overwhelmed the Giants on Friday, allowing two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings and striking out 10 for his 14th win.

He walked none. Archie Bradley and Fernando Rodney finished up the six-hitter. Incredibly, Ray is 5-0 with a 1.39 ERA and a 55/6 K/BB ratio in five starts since returning from his concussion.

Robbie Ray was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Padres, racking up 12 strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball.

Ray scattered four hits and a pair of walks on the day. The Padres were able to scratch out single runs in the second and sixth innings, but the southpaw was in complete command otherwise. He'll carry an outstanding 2.81 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into Friday's matchup against the Giants in San Francisco.

Robbie Ray struck out 14 batters over 7 2/3 scoreless innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 13-0 thrashing of the Dodgers.

It was his second straight dominating performance against the best team in baseball. Ray gave up just three total hits and didn't walk a batter, throwing 82 of his 107 pitches for strikes as the Diamondbacks earned their 11th straight win. Ray actually carried a perfect game into the bottom of the sixth inning, when Logan Forsythe poked a leadoff single to center field. The 25-year-old left-hander is now 12-5 on the season with a 2.80 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 184 strikeouts through 138 innings. And he's lined up for an easy home matchup next time out against the Padres.

Robbie Ray fanned 10 while allowing one run in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a win over the Dodgers.

That's four losses in a row for L.A. Ray has struck out 19 of the 47 batters he's faced in his two starts since returning from the disabled list. In 22 starts this season, he's allowed one or no earned runs 11 times.

Robbie Ray pitched five innings of one-run ball and struck out nine to beat the Mets in his return to the rotation Thursday.

Ray, who missed a month after taking a liner off his head, had a comebacker hit him in the leg today, but he suffered no ill effects. He threw 94 pitches in his five innings and looked perfectly normal in the process. He should be a mixed-league asset the rest of the way.

Diamondbacks activated LHP Robbie Ray from the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Ray will start for the Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon against the Mets. He landed on the disabled list July 29 after taking a Luke Voit line drive off his head July 28 in St. Louis. The 25-year-old southpaw boasts a 9-5 record, 3.11 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 151/58 K/BB ratio in 118 2/3 innings this season.

Robbie Ray (head) has been cleared to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation next Thursday against the Mets.

Ray made it through Thursday's minor league rehab start without any issues, fanning 11 over 4 2/3 innings of two-run ball at High-A Visalia. Prior to his injury, Ray compiled a 3.11 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 151/58 K/BB ratio across 118 2/3 innings.

Robbie Ray (head) struck out 11 while allowing two runs over 4 2/3 innings in a rehab start with High-A Visalia on Thursday.

That will work. Ray looks to be fine physically after leaving a start late last month when he was struck in the head with a line drive, and it looks like he did a fine job knocking the rust off Thursday. He should soon officially be cleared to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation next week.
